I have now put forth re; Shoreham visit to my friends and I await their reply. Again, Thank You immensely Leo Sayer, with a world full of my love, hugs, kisses and cuddles to you a lifetime xxxxx
Thank You immensely Leo Sayer for your very kind invitation to visit Shoreham – I would love to one of these days – will see what I can do on that one and Thank You immensely Leo Sayer for your feel sure I’d be made very welcome, is immensely kind of you – and again, Thank You Leo Sayer. With a world full of my love, hugs, kisses and cuddles to you Leo a lifetime xxxxx
Also I have already told my friends next time when we go to see
Leo Sayer, I’m going to go to the front….yahoo Leo, tell you I always get excited when it comes to all things Leo Sayer too right.
re; retracing the places of where Leo Sayer spent his childhood in Shoreham, would be good to stand in the grounds of Southlands Hospital, where his childhood home once stood in the grounds of the hospital where his mother Teresa and his father Thomas and older sister Kathleen worked. Leo went to the Robert Southwells Roman Catholic School in Ham Road, he joined the local church choir and Leo and his younger brother Brian adopted a keen interest in formula one motor racing from their father – Leo worked at a local car showroom which imported German cars. I can clearly see where Leo is coming from when he quite rightly said, British f1 coming up this weekend reminded him of me – ah bless yes cause when ever it comes to Leo Sayer, I can sure tell you folks, I go the speed of them f1 cars to Leo Sayer, yes too right I do. Roll on when Leo Sayer returns to England next year and another friend would like to come with us three too. I was asked, “Do you have Leo Sayer’s autograph?” I replied, “Yes I’ve still got it in my autograph book and his autograph is still as clear to this day from when Leo very kindly signed it for me on Friday 3rd April 1998, at Cheltenham’s Town Hall.” I always look after anything to do with Leo Sayer, yes too right I do and I wonder whether Leo has ever played concert at The Winter Gardens in Weston Super Mare ?
Do you have a manager i can contact about a privite function i would love you to perform at?
Kind Regards Rebecca
I know another reason why Leo not so keen to return to Shoreham, but if I say about it – folk may think I’m Only Foolin, when I’m not, cause I am another soul mate of Leo Sayer, and that’s why he recognized my soul when we first met and it was an instant click. It would be brilliant to one of these days visit Shoreham and retrace the places there where Leo spent his childhood days, are bless him.
Phil and I head South of the Golden Mile, going back to our hotel. I still had the lovely carton of chips in my hand eating them along the way. A couple passed us by in the opposite direction and looked and said quietly wonder where that girl got those chips from. Then we stopped at a drinks stall and think Phil got a can of pepsi and a girl asked me, “Where did you get those chips from at this time in the morning ?” and I replied to her as I first looked to the North of the Golden Mile then I said to her, “Leo Sayer”. The girl said, “I’ll scratch your eyes out” so I said, “Go on then” and Phil stopped her from doing so – we got back to our hotel way gone four and we couldn’t get in, the door was locked and there was no bell for the night-porter, so we kind of banged on the window and eventually the night-porter came and let us in. Still got up for breakfast before traveling home later that day – folk were asking the then husband where had we been all night and he told them with Leo Sayer and then when Phil and I got the train back to Cheltenham, all they got in that carriage from me was Leo Sayer this, Leo Sayer that and all things Leo Sayer it got too much for one passenger as he got up and moved to a seat across to the other side and I looked at him as though to say, what you done that for its Leo Sayer alright man…..I also recall seeing Leo Sayer in a television programme it was on the night of the Milleniem and he was singing Tie A Yellow Ribbon round the old oak tree with sadness in his eyes and it set me off too…..then a few months later there must have been something on the television about Leo Sayer and I as my father mentioned it to me and ah sincerely sorry I missed it, but he told me about it and he said he can understand why Leo wants me but why do I want Leo and I replied cause Leo Sayer is the most interesting and exciting man I have ever had the immense pleasure of meeting In My Life he means the world to me, a lifetime.
Then after giving Leo his pen and the poem back to him, the then husband, Leo and I had a photograph taken. A young girl fan took the picture, she had to jump up to get Phil in cause he towers us two little ones, Leo and I and as it was she did get us all in the picture. The young girl fan gave the camera back to Phil, then Leo roared loudly in Phil’s ear – brilliant that was that teach him and then Phil roared back in Leo’s ear, they were roaring like lions and then yahoo Leo said to Phil, “Give me that camera, I’m giving it back to Jackie not you” wha hey well said Leo mate and Leo snatched the camera from Phil, brilliant that was too and well done Leo mate you taught Phil a lesson there that kept him quiet, brilliant that and I immensely appreciated it. It made a change for Phil to be put in his place and for me to do some talking which he often stopped me from doing. Anyway, Leo did give me the camera and Leo had hold of it one end and I had hold of it the other needless to say what it was pretending to be and I was immensely pleasantly surprised at Leo doing that it was lovely it was, thank you immensely for that too Leo Sayer. Then a bit later on, Phil and I ah left the night club and we were looking for a Macdonalds. Good job the weather was kind to us that evening as neither of us had a coat. It was dry and mild for an October evening in Blackpool, England. Anyway, Phil asked someone “Is a Macdonald’s open ?” and we got told “No they’re closed” well of course they would be it was way gone past the midnight hour. The next minute, a voice from behind me called out, “Excuse me is a Macdonald’s open?” I replied, “No, sorry they’re closed” I hadn’t realised it was Alan Sutton (Leo’s then fan club manager who I had just met) and Phil and I just carried on walking. Then I noticed someone trying to keep up with me beside me. I was kinda nervous at that time in the night and out on the streets even though was with the then husband. Anyway a bit later on, the person keeping up with me then snapped his fingers and asked, ” Jackie, would you like a walk-about with me?” Ah wow man I soon realised it was loveable Leo Sayer and without a doubt I left Phil and soon skipped and jumped sky-high over to Leo accepting his very kind invitation and I immensely delightedly joined Leo on a walk-about Blackpool’s Golden Mile way gone midnight. Wow, I couldn’t believe it, I was walking on air, the night was like a dream I gave her my everything – but thankfully immensely it was all real. We went to another nightclub. The miserable female door attendants refused us entry and Leo asked them “Why not?” the door attendants didn’t say anything but it didn’t prevent us from having an enjoyable night out on the town with my hero Leo Sayer. We carried on walking, we came across what looked like a burger stall. Leo and I read the menu board together. I leant gently back on Leo as he leant over my shoulder whilst we read the board. The stall looked closed and Leo said, “No I don’t think so!” so we carried on walking. Phil and Alan had a job keeping up with Leo and I. Good that served Phil right that did – and then around 2 in the morning, Leo caught sight of a fish and chip white van parked up a bit of a hill and it still had the lights on, Leo and I dashed over to it and Leo very kindly kept his hands on the counter keeping them open. Alan said, “You can have anything you like” and I replied “Thank you” and Alan said, “You’re more than welcome you are!” Phil had a sausage, burger and chips. I had just chips and wow Leo had the same as me just chips except he had a good idea and topped his up with some brown sauce. Thank you immensely for that brilliant night too Leo. Leo and I were chatting. Leo only had one chip and he threw the rest of his away in the nearby wastepaper bin – maybe he had a lot on his mind at the time – also whilst we were waiting for our supper, a young lad came up and spoke to Leo and he recalled Leo’s original album Silverbird. I knew the one….then Leo and I were in conversation and every time Phil tried to talk ha ha that served him right too as Leo very kindly snapped him out the conversation and let me talk to him, that was brilliant that was thank you immensely for that too Leo. We were talking about technology and Leo I recall saying, “How far above us all it has gone!” then the next minute a couple of what seemed drunken Scottish lads came up and approached Phil. They said to him, “That’s your wife with Leo Sayer” and he turned round and said to them “Yes, we’re having a night of fun” the lad said “Sort it” and Phil said “No”, then the lad turned towards Leo and I. I was nervous and Leo was looking at me and I looked at Leo and realised, oh my I’ve got to look after Leo’s safety on the road here”. Leo put some spiritual strength into me so I turned round to the lad said with my eyes, “Look, go away you – I’m not talking to you” and the lad no messing he did go away he turned back onto Phil and Phil had a heck of a job getting the lad to go away and next minute Leo and I were heading back up north of the Golden Mile and ha ha Phil had a job catching Leo and I up, but he did eventually catch us up – I recall Leo looking at one of the green telephone exchange boxes on the mile as we headed up North. Then around quarter to four in the morning, ain’t feeling tired no no no no, Alan said, “I think we ought to say Good night now!” Ah, do we have to go ? Then Leo and I were just confirming something and the mention of Leo’s new album. Alan said to Phil, “Look, they’re kissing again” but brilliant nothing he could do about it thanks immensely again to loveable Leo Sayer for that also. Then Leo and I put double thumbs up and ah, we said “Goodnight Old Friend” and ah, Leo and Alan started walking north of the mile and Phil and I waited aside for a little while. Then Leo turned round as though to come back to me and then Alan suddenly realised Leo wasn’t walking with him and he called out loudly to Leo “Come on” – Leo didn’t budge and Alan saw me looking at him for shouting at Leo then he thought I better not shout at Leo and then he called quieter to Leo, “Come on”. Eventually Leo did walk back again with Leo and it was at that moment when Leo and Alan were saying about shutting down Leo’s website temporarily till he found me again at the end of that tour and when Alan said he’d mention Leo and I on Classic Gold radio with Happy Together and One Man Band.
Ah I recall Leo mention about relocating to Australia when we were in Blackpool – wish he could fit me in his suitcase with me ah please Leo. That night in Blackpool Thursday 14th 1999 was a brilliant night too another brilliant and outstanding Leo Sayer concert in Brannigans night club. That was the first time ever I saw Leo Sayer play concert in a night club. When he first came on stage I got told he looked under the weather, but when he spotted my then husband in the audience Leo knew I was somewhere in the room and he soon livened up and he leaped into the crowd on the left hand side of the stage in search of me, he shifted the audience that was so funny as they looked up at Leo and probably wondering what are you doing that for ? Anyway, Leo found me eventually standing just behind the then husband at the appropriate moment when Leo was walking slowly round the stage floor singing our song When I Need You, I love you Leo – Leo’s blue eyes were sparkling like a million diamonds when we found each other and we both smiled another “Hello” Leo got us all waving our arms in the air when singing our song, When I Need You he also sang You Make Me Feel Like Dancing and he completed the gig off with a Shiana Twain number, Man Feels Like A Woman and he leapt into the audience on his right side again and this time Leo gave us some yodelling. There was a bouncer stood just in front of me and he stared at me with wonder as though to say “How do you and Leo Sayer know each other so well”, I just looked at him and replied with the eyes, “We just do!” then after that I remembered I had a poem to give to Leo, a poem I wrote especially for him. I found Leo eventually it was whilst he was seated at the bar and looked like he had a pint of Stella Atois…..then Leo and I had a photograph taken in the back door way of the night club. The lovely photo was taken by Leo’s then fan club manager, Alan Sutton who addressed me with a “Hello sweetheart!” That all happened soon after Leo and Alan had returned from taking some recording equipment or amplifiers back to their hotel. I recall seeing Alan and Leo trying to get a taxi back to their hotel and Alan said, “We’ll be back in a minute” and Leo was staring at me through the window in a pensive mood and the then husband asked me, “Is that Leo Sayer” and I excitedly replied “Yes it sure is Leo Sayer” yahoo and I was immensely excited. I saw Leo and Alan step into the taxi it was like one of the London black taxi cabs. Leo had his head down seated in the back with Alan, Alan was seated behind the driver and I think he must have asked Leo something like, “Are you alright ?” and Leo nodded his head. Then later on in the night Leo asked me to go and find somewhere quiet to write my details out for him on the poem. Leo leant me his pale blue and silver pen and I did go and find somewhere quiet. I was about to write my details on the poem and my hand and fingers literally froze around Leo’s pen – wow I couldn’t believe I was holding my hero’s pen to write my details out for him with. Then the then husband came up and tried peering over my shoulder. I leant over the paper covering it up with my arms when Phil asked, “What are you doing ?” and I immensely delightedly told him, “Nothing for you Phil, its for Leo” then some guy in the night club he came up and tried peering and I kept my arms over the paper so none of the two saw what I was doing. The guy didn’t ask anything he just shrugged his shoulders and walked away. Then as I started to write my details out for Leo with his pen – my hand went like a leaf but I managed to calm it down and write my details out for Leo. I went to give Leo his pen and the poem back and by this time there was a long Train of fans queued up to Leo and so I went to go to the back of the queue, and before I got half way, Leo had very kindly asked them to move so I could be close to him. They did move without any fuss and I said thank you to Everyone.
Ah and now I wonder whether the name Magdalen comes from the song Magdalena.
Ah wow thank you immensely for liking a couple of my comments on my face book page Magdalen Ursula Blanch, I am immensely appreciated and pleasantly surprised when I received three of your notifications that’s brilliant that is, thank you immensely – glad you like the copy of the review I copied and pasted for you regarding Leo Sayer in Worthing published by the Chichester Observer and oh wow yes please I am also immensely appreciated for you keep me posted regarding a DVD of Leo Sayer’s 40th Anniversary Silverbird Tour or whether the DVD is just for promotional purposes – I look forward to any updates on that too. Thank you immensely my Darlin’ love you Leo.
Love you leo and that’s true your songs on my ring tones. have a merry christmas
Love you leo.your songs are on my ring tones.have a merry christmas
When I said about Leo Sayer made a come back that was when he embarked on a UK Come Back Tour in 1998. I wondered where Leo Sayer had been after all those years when a leaflet came flying through the letter box in January 1998. I picked it up and turned it over and wow there was Leo Sayer and I was Jackie Jumpy jumpy jumpers alright. I soon went and booked up for the show and so lucky to have been seated in the front row too.
I’ve found Leo Sayer 5 on twitter and clicked on the ‘follow’ link – there are now 38 fans following Leo Sayer on his official twitter page – and whilst I was on there, I immensely enjoyed reading about how Leo will never forget about the day he drove all day in Brighton with his co-writer David Courtney in October 1973, forty years ago and it was a big thing hearing our little song Roger’s Giving It All Away when it got aired on radio play for the very first time – wow – and how its icons like Leo Sayer who write about descriptions of their life, not their future that are timeless songs and fans feel a part of those songs such as When I Need You, I love you Leo – and I also enjoyed admiring the yellow poster advertising Leo Sayer’s gig in Worthing on his fortieth Anniversary Silverbird Ireland-UK Tour 2013….talking of which I also admired the white board Cheltenham’s Town Hall had stood outside on the pavement advertising Leo Sayer in concert when he made a come back and I’m immensely thrilled to bits to bits Leo Sayer made a come back, well when ever I saw that white board on the pavement outside the town hall which beard the name Leo Sayer, I jumped for joy alright yes too right I did and thank you immensely Leo Sayer for posting a couple more photos of you in London on to my main face book page is absolutely brilliant.
Oh brilliant I wonder what Christmas goodies Leo will conjure up next time he writes to us all on his Website’s main news message page and ah I Wonder Where The Lions Are, ah I wonder where Leo’s got to – I hope he is keeping well, bless him. We could chant some Leo chants Leo, Leo, yahoo Leo said there was some Leo chants during his gigs and I was one of them chanting Leo loudly very loudly and I wonder whether he heard me from back stage – oh yes, too right I was chanting Leo chants.
I recall when I went to my very first Leo Sayer concert at Cheltenham’s Town Hall on Friday 3rd April 1998 and Leo opened up his show with saying “This is a nice room but where’s the carpet?” I was in that room tonight Monday 2nd December – first time in 15 years and it brought back all those brilliant memories of seeing Leo Sayer in concert for the first time ever and they still got no carpet in that room Leo. I remembered Leo coming through the stage door and asked “Is Everyone enjoying themselves?” and he had the microphone placed over his right shoulder asked again, “Is Everyone enjoying themselves?” and us audience replied “Yes” on both occasions and the second reply of “yes” being louder than the first time – then Leo went into a Rolling Stones number, Alright Now. I also recalled the time during that concert when Leo sat on the wooden stage floor playing harmonica in Raining In My Heart, and then during the second half of his outstanding performance, Leo performed the beautiful love ballad When I Need You – Leo was wearing a white t-shirt when he sang our favourite song, When I Need You, I love you Leo
Oh no sincerely sorry there’s a correction I must sincerely make when I said about listening to Leo Sayer’s Just A Boy album from his brand new complete box set called Just A Box is what I should have written, sincerely sorry for that. Said I get immensely excited when ever there’s Leo Sayer around.
Yahoo Leo, I’m listening to the Just A Boy album from Leo Sayer’s brand new complete box set Just A Boy brilliant man. Also Leo Sayer (born on 21st May 1948) is a British pop singer who guest starred on The Muppet Show episode 302.
He scored two #1 hits on the Billboard singles chart in 1977, “You Make Me Feel Like Dancing” and “When I Need You”, both of which he performed on The Muppet Show.
Sayer also appeared on The Tonight Show when Kermit the Frog hosted, and sang a duet with Miss Piggy.
I also enjoy the video of Leo Sayer duet with Suzy Quatro singing Tumbling Dice…
I always get immensely excited when there’s Leo Sayer around – too right I do. Roll on when Leo returns to the UK to tour again – I would even turn up even if I was unwell too, cause I love you Leo with a world full of my hugs, kisses and cuddles to you a lifetime – you deserve the very best in everything you do Leo xxxx
Ah I Wonder Where The Lions Are, I’ve just been watching and enjoying an online video of Leo Sayer featured in The Racoons singing a song called You Can Do It. .
Hello! Hey I love that too cause its also brilliant to know and I appreciate immensely Leo Sayer very kindly looking out for me generally and at his gigs whether its on stage or outside near the stage door. I always look out for Leo Sayer too and yes too right I always will come to your rescue Leo, ah bless cause my favourite song is When I Need You, I love you Leo
I also seem to recall in September 1998, Leo Sayer mention on one of his Classic Gold, ten radio programmes he collects car stickers everywhere he goes, I wonder if he still does that today ? Leo Sayer is a brilliant DJ too as well as a brilliant singer song-writer and I will always be a lifelong Leo Sayer devoted fan too, as Leo mentioned in his The Base, Bilston interview on Saturday 9th November 2013 there are Leo Sayer fans and there are die-hard Leo Sayer fans and I’m sure one of his die-hard Leo Sayer fans alright, too right I am and I always will be – I love helping our Leo Sayer.
Ah no one introduced me to Leo Sayer music only I guess in a round about way the college where I was boarding at did – I often heard Leo Sayer songs played around the campus wanted to know who’s is that music and I soon found out when hearing, One Man Band, Thunder In My Heart, You Make Me Feel Like Dancing and When I Need You, those songs were often played on the college juke box too in the concourse – the voice so special and one day I recall holding a white covered album of Leo Sayer it was Leo Sayer The Best Of fLeo Sayer, featuring all his hits including Long Tall Glasses, More Than I Can Say and Moonlighting – well I had a feeling I knew who this brilliant man is but I thought I would wait and come back to you later, as I was foolishly into The Osmonds at that time, but I thankfully ditched them and 21 years later I did come back to Leo Sayer as in the song Til’ You Come Back To Me and it was more than well worth the 21 years I waited for – good things comes to those who wait and it was the very first time I ever went to a Leo Sayer concert and wow he blew me away and we Lost Control self-control and I think I remember hearing Amanda Holden trying to cross her feet over on her radio breakfast programme she hosted at the time on Classic Gold…..and then I got Classic Gold to play When I Need You back to Leo Sayer – think that pleasantly surprised him as like me had difficulty concentrating afterwards that was the time when Leo Sayer presented ten of his own radio shows on Classic Gold and I had a feeling too he would start his first programme off with a Beach Boys number, Good Vibrations. I have remained a true and devoted life long massive Leo Sayer fan ever since 1976 best choice ever that and I am just so glad Leo Sayer keeps going too, brilliant.
That’s true, Leo’s voice is special and I am a massive fan of Leo and his music. I’ll be sure to come when you make a return tour of England please Leo !!!-:) and that’s also true my favourite song is
When I Need You, I love you Leo
Hello! My name is Sarah and I am 13 years old. A few yearsago I was introduced to your music by my mum who is a big fan and use to play the same album in the car day after day! I honestly think you’re voice is quite special, you sound like no other and I’m a big fan of your music! You’re amazing and hopefully you’ll come and peform in New Zealand again, I’ll be sure to come!!!:-) My favorite song of yours is When I Need You. I love you Leo
Oh yes our little guy still loves and always will love, You Make Me Feel Like Dancing Leo, he loves it a lifetime and Giving It All Away, especially with you playing harmonica the way you play it in that fine song too Leo, is brilliant.
Life’s so dull here in England now Leo gone back home to Sydney, yes please hurry back home to England, Leo, you and your music keep me going cause You Make Me Feel Like Dancing always you do Leo Sayer and I’ve just tried that mobile phone number which once texted me and said the person heard Leo Sayer on the radio whilst the person was driving a heavy goods vehicle on Germany’s motorway – wonder whether the person will text back to me something Leo Sayer. Also talking of You Make Me Feel Like Dancing, Leo Sayer sings that fine number in an Australian childrens television series called The Wiggles. Leo, I whole-heartedly agree with you the girl dancing on there does resemble me very much so and also thank you immensely once again for very kindly ordering me that Special edition of The Wiggles CD featuring Leo Sayer singing You Make Me Feel Like Dancing at Christmas 2010, it arrived in good time and I did place it under the Christmas tree and I couldn’t wait to open it, but I was good and I did wait till Christmas Day and it was the first one I opened. Again, thank you immensely for that Leo Sayer is absolutely very kind of you, I feel immensely honoured in all that you do for me, with a world full of my love, hugs and kisses to you a lifetime xxxx
Also with being the first person to buy Leo Sayer tickets and the first person to ring up for them at the robin 2 venue, Bilston, when live an hour and a half drive away from the venue – that sure is a dedicated massive Leo Sayer fan isn’t it ? The woman on the phone giggled like she knew it – brilliant that is
Looking forward to Leo starting the recording of his new album and when its released I’ll treat myself and buy it and I’ll be the first to buy it just as I was the first person who telephoned the robin 2 and paid for the tickets over the telephone before the tickets were even printed.
I sensed Leo missing England more this time, I just knew he was xx
Also an immense thank you for very kindly encouraging me not to be so shy….I will take heed your very kind suggestion next time I won’t be so shy and I will come up and talk to you – ah thank you immensely for that too Leo, ah bless xx Oh yes and I was reading some report a website had written about you think it was with the Express co.uk and it said Leo Sayer was born on 12th May 1948, the person who ever wrote that got that far wrong as Leo Sayer was born on 21st May 1948.
Ah bless that’s so cute, yes missing our Leo like Jackie is and I have a feeling Leo is missing England, I knew he would this time – too right I’m looking forward to Leo touring England next year and want to do more concerts than just the one and I’ll come on my own if I have to too anything especially for Leo Sayer and yes I can’t wait to treat myself to Leo Sayer’s new album and next time if I’m right at the back of the crowd like I was at Bilston, I’ll leave the friends behind and just come forward to Leo Sayer up there on the stage – too right I will and will do the same even if come on own too. Yes please hurry back soon Leo my mate – ah bless its lovely of you to think of me like in Val’s message thank you immensely for that too Leo Sayer, I am immensely honoured and appreciate everything you do for me – ah bless, now the tears are streaming its Raining In My Heart for I love you More Than I Can Say, twice as much tomorrow xx
Guess your back home in the sun, and hope your missing England, Like Jackie I am looking forward for your next tour and want to do more concerts than just the one, and to treat myself to your new album, and next time not to be so shy to talk to you, hurry back soon xx
That’s true, I too particularly enjoy hearing The Show Must Go On, Train, Tomorrow and Pop Life and three favourite Leo Sayer albums those fine songs come from are in order Silverbird, Just A Boy, and Voice In My Head they are also particular because they are three favourite songs of Leo Sayer and Jackie yes too right, yahoo and yes too right thank you Leo Sayer for very kindly taking time and meeting us and talking to us on all the occasions you have done and especially with last year’s wonderful surprise of when you came to chat to meet outside the stage door at your headlined Llandudno concert. That was also very kind of you and when you very kindly made those two men move out of our way, they didn’t half move quick – no messing brilliant that was, thank you immensely Leo Sayer. One Man Band is another also another song in particular enjoy hearing too. That true please come back next year Leo Sayer – I hope to come to more than one show of yours as one just ain enough for a fix and I’ve already started saving up to come to more than one Leo Sayer show next year, blow the cost of the taxi its always more than well worth it for especially for Leo Sayer even if I was ill I would try and find a way of getting there – and that’s good Reasons to save for to come and see Leo Sayer on his next UK tour, which I hope will be next year more than once. I too am looking forward to the release of Leo Sayer’s new album and I’m going to be the first to buy it.
Hi Leo, I just wanted to say thank you so much for an absolutely fabulous concert in Glasgow recently. You sounded great from the very moment you stepped onto the stage.
I first saw you perform live in 1975, during your “Another Year” tour. I was one of those young girls clambouring to get onto that very high stage at the Apollo! I have been at all your Glasgow gigs since then and have to say that there was definitely something very special about this latest one. Your performance, your voice and your rapport with the audience were fantastic! I had brought along three friends and my sister……they are all still talking about it!
I particularly enjoyed hearing, “The Show Must Go On”, Train”, “Tomorrow” and “Pop Life”…..perhaps because they come from my three favourite Leo albums. Well, those three and “Leo Sayer”….that is if I were forced to choose!
I am sooooo looking forward to the next tour. Please, please do come back next year! I hope to get to a couple of shows next time…..one just ain’t enough of a fix!
Looking forward to the release of the new album.
Thanks so much for taking the time to meet fans after the show. It was lovely to meet you and have a couple of photos taken with you.
All the very best
Leo Sayer also worked with the same record producer as the Bee Gees Arif Mardin. The Bees Gees composed Heart Stop Beating In Time for Leo Sayer. Arif Mardin produced Leo Sayer’s album World Radio which was released a year and a half to two years later than, Living In A Fantasy.
Hello Leo ! I just recently saw your wonderful, sell-out concert at Worthing .You were as brilliant as ever, I havn’t seen you perform live since the seventies , and I was amazed how good your voice sounded .The last concert I came to of yours must have been around 1970 something -it was at the Civic Hall Guildford and I had the unbelievable privilege of dancing with you on stage when you sang ‘You make me feel like dancing ‘!
Glad you had such a successful tour and that you are thinking of coming back to Worthing .I hope you do. Your fans are right -there is a demand for your music which is not being met by the record companies and the media. This happens with other artists from the seventies.I am also a fan of the late Kenny Ball who died this year and I had to write to Radio 2 to get some of his numbers played as trad jazz is totally ignored .Anyway , it occurred to me that your talented nephew could well be a replacement for Kenny and his trumpet as he was absolutely brilliant .Anyway Leo , glad you’re still on such wonderful form and hope to see you and your nephew again soon.lots of love
Hello Leo, I want to say thank you so much for the wonderful performance you gave us at Evesham Regal on the 21st – not an easy venue, I’m sure. It was such a special time for me. I lost my husband not too long ago and you were the ‘voice’ of our romance in the late 70s, your music the background and setting of the time when our love was growing and deepening. ‘I can’t stop loving you’ was always our song. So when I heard you were coming to Evesham, there was no way I could miss it. I couldn’t have known quite how emotional it would be, the same voice, the same lovely personality, taking me back strongly to old, happy times and also being a part of my present, which of course is quite lonely. So I was the one at the back of the auditorium in tears. Of course when you finished the encore with ‘our song’ the tears became a flood and there was no way I could stay behind and maybe get the chance of meeting you – I don’t think it would have done much for you or the other fans. But I did love the gig, and so, I know, would my husband Tony have done. I could almost feel him beside me clapping and shouting for more.
Now the tears are over, I realise you have given me a real gift. Revisiting that time so strongly, I have somehow begun to get more of a sense of myself – which I’d lost – and even to see that there is a way forward for me.
So thank you, Leo; and thanks also to your amazing band. Please do another UK tour before too long, as I would never miss another opportunity of seeing you live. I’ll drag my daughters along too.
Sending you love and many blessings. Nancie x
Its an immense wonderful feeling being a special fan of Leo Sayer my hero – wow man, Leo is special to me too.
Re; the photo of you and Ronnie Johnson – its a good one…would appreciate when you’ve got a few moments please to view it, thanking you Leo xx
WOW – what a night at you last UK concert. We had the pleasure of seeing you at The Brook, Southampton 2 weeks prior and decided to have a night away and stay in Worthing for the final show. So glad we did. You absolutely brought the house down and nearly the sound system with the delayed start, but, all calm soon returned as you “sang into action”. My favorite idol has always been Elkie Brook but you equally are my male celeb favorite, as you have always been my sister’s, Frances. So pleased we stayed at the end and met you again Leo and thanks to Jan, who took such excellent photos for us. Both France & I look forward to your return next year along with a few more friends we shall be bringing. Safe journey home, but come back to us next year, PLEASE xxx
Ah wow and that too is also a great honour and greatly appreciated to Leo Sayer for saying, Jackie – of Shoreham. I love you More Than I Can Say, and I Can’t Stop Lovin’ you Leo.
Yes, that’s true the best concert we’ve seen in years and me too hope you can return to the Robin 2 Bilston soon Leo xx
Wow, its also immensely interesting to read that you have a talented nephew too Leo, who ably assisted you providing a trumpet solo on one number.
Great show in Worthing last night! See my Worthing Herald review here:
The best concert we have seen in years!! Hope you can return soon to Robin2 at Bilston Leo.xx
Me and me Mum thoroughly enjoyed your final concert in Worthing – incredible energy and an inspired performance – hope you enjoy your saunter around town today – and though you seem less keen on Shoreham (why?!) – do come visit – it is beautiful these days – feel sure you would be made very welcome,
Jackie – of Shoreham
